Canonical Ltd. make it so easy to install a bare bones Ubuntu Server system. Go ahead and download the .iso file from here...http://www.ubuntu.com/business/server/overview if you have not already. There are detailed instructions on this page for downloading, burning to CD, and installing, so go ahead and follow those instructions or follow the screen shots below.

I install the very least amount of software at first in order to take a snapshot of the system in it's simplest form. Then we can build it up from there. Here are the steps you will see while installing Ubuntu Server...
